Mung Bean, Kali Black Gram (Organic)
Vigna mungo. Black. 80 days.
Very interesting black seeded mung bean relative. Commonly consumed in India and Nepal as a protein rich staple. Mung beans are often used in a similar way to red lentils, such as in dal makhani. The flour has a sticky texture when cooked making it useful for flat breads like masala dosa. The small furry plants have yellow flowers and yield early even in Oregon. This strain of black gram was obtained by Anpetu Oihankesni of Sourcepoint Organic Seeds. He sourced it in Bhaktapur, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal.
